An agathion (pronounced a-GATH-ee-on)[1] is a member of a group of benevolent outsiders who have delayed transcendence in order to defend the realm of Nirvana and meditate on its deeper mysteries.[2][3]

Each group of agathions follows the teachings of a transcended elder master, a powerful agathion who has been granted far greater power by the plane itself, and who is believed to have been one of the first mortal souls to have reached this plane. This arrangement is not any sort of strict hierarchy, as these creatures do not try to enforce their will on others. As well as contemplating the nature of Nirvana, each of the agathion races have their own specific roles from guardians to messengers to bards.[2][3] Agathions also send representatives to Pharasma's court to help mortal souls reach a more enlightened state.[4]
